Packages, with all their array some are more beautiful than others
Some behold them as if the gift is on the outside because of their amazing colors
Some look upon the package as if they already like what’s on the inside
Guessing beforehand if the package is worthy to be opened, as they decide
When given a choice of packages we tend to open the least beautiful package last
After we’ve gone through all of the others maybe it had been better to have worn a mask
We tend to choose the packages that are all decked out in all their finery
Confusingly choosing the most beautiful as if we had spend all day at a winery
With emphasis placed upon the packaging we see the beautiful colors of bows, ribbons, and wrappings
We don’t realize until the gift is opened that we have been the benefactor of useless trappings
Some packages seem beautiful to the untrained naked eye
But some once opened make us feel like we have been deceived and given a lie
On the outside some packages hide the nature of the gift and tend to embellish
And because of the package, the giver knows in which we’ll tend to relish
But once we have begun to change our focus and our shift
We’ll begin to understand that the package is not the gift
